Maybe he feels about electric start Like I do about automatic Quads. They don't belong.

BuckBilly...that comment might just start a heated debate. I wouldnt say any quad doesnt belong. Everyone has there preference.

I had not planned on carrying this topic any farther. You did not waste your time every opinion should have a value wether anyone agrees or not. As long as people keep buying atvs and riding them that is all that counts.

I will not post on this topic again.

you will have to buy a xr400 dirt bike motor and take the side cover and kick start parts out of it to put kick on your 400ex ... its not an easy task and will cost alot to do it ... i have seen 1 that way and it was kool but cost about 1000 to do it ...(had 2 buy a complete xr400)

      FOR SALE: $10,800 or best offer.

      Custom built Street Legal Harley Davidson 4 Wheeler . 

      Answer to your first question ...
      YES, you can drive it anywhere.. on highways.. back roads... neighborhoods.. off road... ANYWHERE ITS LEGAL FOR CARS or 4-Wheelers !

      This took a lot of work and effort with many divisions of the transportation dept. and through multiple attorneys advice.

      This is one of only two 4 wheelers that are street legal in the U.S.A. (Excluding Montana, parts of Arizona, and New York).

      Now for the details. 

      Its a 1989 Harley Davidson Frame and Engine.
      The motor is matching numbers to frame and title.
      The motor is 883cc beefed up to 1200cc.

      This bike has too many upgrades to list as you can see in the pictures.

      Please ask questions if needed.

      This bike has been in Dirt Rider Mag and several other places.

      There is more than $20,000 in parts and man hours put into this bike.

      Additional Upgrades I will be starting this month:
      Turn Signal Relay and Dakota Digital Upgraded Speedometer

      This bike has Super Swamper Vampire tires in some pics (THESE ARE NOT STREET LEGAL TIRES) and do not come with bike.

      This bike has STI Black Diamond Tires with black STI3 rims in other pics. (THESE ARE DOT APPROVED TIRES AND ARE STREET LEGAL).

      This bike also has ROAD Street Tires too.... 

      YES 2 SETS OF TIRES !

      All 2 sets of tires and rims are included in price.

      Top speed is around 100mph-140mph. This thing will move. 

      Be the first to own a 4 wheeler on the road and in the woods... 

      Please call 812-305-11 nine six I live in Lexington. KY

      Hi guys I'm new to the forums and I need some help to make a decision. I recently started riding quads a few months ago and have been riding a Yamaha blaster. I'm now deciding of getting a raptor 350, Honda 400ex, trx450, or yfz 450. At first I looked into the 350 but I wanted more power. Recently I looked into the yfz and read it has a smoother ride and something about adjusting the cylinders? Any information on what I should get, pros? Cons? Would all be extremely helpful.

      Hi everyone,
      I have a question, if the starter clutch gear looks fine but is still not working correctly then all I should need to replace is the one way bearing, right?
      thanks,

      Just picked this up over the weekend;
      2001 400ex starts and runs great with fairly new rubber, nerf bars, aftermarket subframe (needs a grab bar), aftermarket bearing carrier & LEX MXe exhaust. Needs bushings and bearings front and rear. Oh yeah and it's got alum wheels too.
      It may be leaking at the bottom of the cylinder on the carb side (cleaned it all off and ran it/road it for an hour or so but didnt see any sign of oil or leaking and needs the chain replaced. picked it up for $1200
      If I take the cylinder off to replace the gaskets, should i do anything else while Im in there?

      I have a 07 trx 400ex. I had issues with the shifting. It would shift up to 2nd then hit a roof and go no higher. I took it apart and split the case. The shift drum works fine when shifting by hand or with pliers. But when you use the gearshift plate and shifter it will not move. Any ideas?
